May Card Class... Men's Origami folded shirt.

Hello lovely blog friends and new followers - welcome!

And yes, I know... there has been a lack of postings from me this week, sorry. It was so lovely to have the extra bank holiday day off, but all the relaxing was undone as soon as I got into work and realised it meant 5 days work had to be crammed into 4 - aaarrrgghh!!

So, here is the first card made at my card class this month.
I was asked last month to create a Father's Day card, and this is what I came up with. I wanted it to be quite trendy and "with it", and of course, I think this card can be used for any age and occasion - especially an 18th or 21st. what do you think?
The shirt is made out of one piece of paper, great isn't it... and I then tied the tie as you would a real full sized tie using the Denim Jean ribbon which worked out to be just right size, and finished it off perfectly!
Stampin' Up! supplies used
Stamped sentiment - Teeny Tiny Wishes
Background paper - 12x12" Designer Series paper (DSP) "First Edition Specialty"
Card Stock - Soft Suede, Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla.
Ink - Soft Suede
Shirt Paper - Patterned Designer Series paper Stack in Regals
Tie - 3/8" Denim Jean Ribbon - Blue
Punches - Word Window, Modern Label, Round Tab, 1/2" circle, Handheld 1/16"
Ribbon - 3/8" Twill tape (cream)

Would you like it if I make a video of how I made this so you can make it too? If I get enough response I will make it.... so start leaving comments!
